Nah, you're a douchebag. You attacked someone that was clearly afk, had no valuable cargo and in a ship 2 or 3 classes below yours. And then you killed my pod, which is like a turbo douchebag thing to do. You gained nothing by doing that, only the satisfaction of knowing you inconvinienced someone else. Which makes you a douchebag.
Oh and btw, I sincerely hope you do get raped. What would be even better is if you or one of your loved ones have been raped, that would bring me endless mirth.
I did not respond. Petition submitted. When I read it I made the decision. When I pasted it to corp chat the boys asked me petition it without delay.
So, Eve is a game. It is a game of loss. And loss gets people get mad. As someone that engages in PvP I understand that I do, on occasion ruin the day of others. It is an endless argument back and forth about safety vs non-safety and being prepared vs being oblivious to your surroundings.
So often, the rage I see in people comes in two main flavors. Those that are killed in high sec and those that are killed in gate camps. Both times, while I do not understand the rage I do understand that they were in positions where they did not expect what happened to them to happen. Right or wrong, situationally aware or not, the environment a player in can affect their response to a negative action.
The oddest part about this entire thing is that I was reading a post the other day from a female blogger discussing some of the sexist content in WoW that she found offensives. While this is not the game's storyline it is still a sad fall back behavior. I've been debating the view point of the WoW bloggers reaction to the in game story and its 'place' in a game. I wonder how she would feel about this reaction from a person vs the content she was bothered by in the games story.
When this random person decided to respond with rage to a loss his fall back was to wish cancer and rape upon those that harmed him. He did not know that I am female. He simply picked two of the most horrible things he could think of and wished them upon a random stranger for upsetting him. I rather pity him.
I made the petition simple. I wrote it up as "abusive language" under the Harassment section of the petition page and pasted the entire string of eve mails. I'll let CCP handle that side of the equation. I decided not to respond back to him. It'd be poking him with a stick if I did and stirring shit to stir shit.
CCP GMs responded to the petition 4 minutes after I sent it with a form letter that said they would investigate the situation but they would be unable to share the results of the investigation with me due to account privacy issues.
That was about what I expected. Now, unless he comes back with more I've washed my hands of it. My blog will return to its normally scheduled batches of random posting about whatever flickers across my mind and game.
